Splash Mountain is getting revamped with The Princess and The Frog, Margot Robbie is starring in a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Michael Keaton is in talks to return as Batman, prolific director Joel Schumacher passed away, Twister is getting rebooted and more in this week’s News Shotgun.
To celebrate the “Summer of Keanu”, Zach and Chris watched Keanu’s first-ever starring role in the 1986 TV movie, The Brotherhood of Justice, which also co-stars Billy Zane and Kiefer Sutherland, where Keanu leads his high school friends in a vigilante gang to combat the drugs and other crime affecting their school.
This week on the podcast, Zach, Chris, and Joe talk about some of the big news out of E3, including the first look at Square Enix’s Avengers game, the new horror take on the Banana Splits, Doctor Sleep, the awfulness of Dark Phoenix, the unexpected tone of Cold Pursuit, more Batmanless prequels with Pennyworth and more.
The biggest dog at the conference since Sony declined to attend E3 this year, Microsoft took the opportunity to reveal details about their next console along with new trailers for games like Halo: Infinite, Gears 5, Battletoads, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Cyberpunk 2077 (with Keanu!!?!) and more.
